Bad Takeaway Causes Bad Shots

Many misdirected golf shots are the result of an incorrect takeaway. This vital movement is important because the initial movement of the club largely controls what follows.
What consciously initiates the back swing will vary even with the greatest of players. At times, it will seem that the hands and arms start the club head back. At other times, there may be a feeling that the turn of the left shoulder is triggering the swing.
For the best bet, the simplest method to execute the golf swing properly is with a forward pass.
